Predicting Flow and Transport in Porous and Fractured Media


Welcome to the webpage of Kang Research Group!

We are a group of motivated and passionate researchers and students who advance our fundamental understanding of coupled flow processes in porous and fractured media. We combine theory, high-performance numerical simulation, machine learning, and visual laboratory experiments to understand how the coupling between multiple processes such as biogeochemical, thermal, and mechanical processes controls fluid flow and reactive transport in hydrologic and subsurface systems across spatial scales (from pore to field scale).
